    I don't have many female friends (let's be real I have no female friends), and this show is really good at making me feel like I'm having a "girl talk" and you all have conversations that I can't always have with my male friends. Thank you so much for this show, Barbara.  heartpulse

    Plot twist: In Japan, Women majority of the time do not make and/or prepare sushi. This is because typically Japanese women have warmer hands than Japanese men.

    It's amazing how much Miles and Barbara get each other. Also Miles and Barbara now give me life! I enjoyed the Hentai talk. I don't think I could be in 1 but I agree that people in polygamous and open relationships should not be looked down upon.

    Right when Miles says about that girl that wanted him to eff her up, I automatically did hand earmuffs, omg, Miles, my smirking is off the charts!

    I feel so weird posting this now but w.e. I'm someone who can separate sex from love and I thought everyone was like that, and it was weird when I talked about it to my boyfriend and he just seemed so surprised

    shout out to me necroposting like a doofus but I'm catching up on these.

    I'm in the same boat as Miles on the kink thing. I really enjoy when the woman I'm with enjoys what I'm doing. One partner stopped and warned me about her "habit", for lack of a better word. Things got hot and heavy and she stops me and says "Hey, I don't want to hurt you so try to worry more about you". I asked her why and she informed me that she claws when she's into it. I don't mind that because that means she's enjoying it so I tell her it's fine. It was totally great but I had a huge scratch across my back that lasted almost a week.

    Continuing, she also made me discover I can be a bit controlling about the bedroom. She didn't like to give blowjobs so she didn't expect anything in return. I, also like Miles, enjoy going down on my partners, and based on my previous relationship, I was pretty good. So, I wanted to do that for her. She would try to keep my head up toward hers but ultimately I would go down for a few minutes occasionally. She enjoyed it on a physical level and appreciated the gesture but she preferred that only nethers met nethers and lips met lips.

    Sorry if I'm oversharing. It just sorta feels like the comments can be an open place free of judgement

    I'm personally prefer cold weather over hot. Like they said you can put on more layers, but you can only strip off a certain amount before you can't take anymore off. You can't strip off skin after all.

    My partner got married in her late twenties but I didn't by quite a way and I was fine with that, might have been nice if my previous relationships had worked out better but they didn't and getting married wouldn't have solved the problems so I was happy with that. I have to say that I thought to myself "this is the last time I try this" but it never was the case until now (and this time because I'm in a wonderful relationship where we're as committed as can be and, anyhoo, if the worst happens I'll just get myself back up again and (probably) try again - because I apparently can't learn that lesson ;)

    I might also add that you might think it's good to have a much younger partner or be jealous; don't bother, there are a lot of people out there who give us grief, despite the fact _all_ my grandparents, great grandparents and great great grandparents (my family is really into family history research) had age gaps similar to mine which makes my parents (and apparently their generation) the weird ones! :)


    Was also going to say that I am totally with Miles on the getting pleasure from seeing and feeling the pleasure others get from me. It's taken me to some interesting places I'd never have thought to have gone myself or wouldn't have considered but a confident partner and a genuine desire to have a good time was all it took and after we arrived we didn't have reason to look back  barbara

    I have to admit though that sometimes it can be hard because just getting on with it doesn't work well for me - quickies don't get me going and it can be hard to finish without a little disappointment; foreplay is a thing that I need, even if it is just verbal or even hints over the hours before something planned. This has caused occasional interesting situations but, hey, go with the flow, right? ;)


    I'd also be interested in hearing any guests on Always Open who were asexual (two passing good acquaintances of mine are), trans (sexual/gender/vestite, well, any (and all) of this multifaceted family at all).

    I'm laughing at the "f*ckaware" party because I went to a women's centered college, meaning that I went to these as school sponsored events. Also $100 bet on the sex toy shop in Berkeley is Good Vibrations.

    As someone who is Polyamorous and has two long term partners, I just want to weigh in because those on the podcast are all monogamous people. It sometimes makes people who are polyamorous or those who prefer an open style relationship uncomfortable when all they hear is people say "Oh, I could never do that" - for me, when I was younger, it always made me feel that what I felt was wrong. Though I understand that as a panel of monogamous people only one side gets represented (and you guys handled it quite well and offered some good advice ^_^ ).

    If anyone who sees this and is interested in moving into Poly and Casual relationships - talk to people who are already in them. You're not weird or abnormal, it is a legitimate way to do things. Also you're not "special" or "rare" - there are plenty of people who feel like Poly is the healthiest way to do relationships :) People in Poly relationships are not void of jealousy - we go through all the same emotions BUT we aim to work through those feelings. Resources are very important.

    For me though, the most difficult thing about being Poly is trying to present my relationship style as legitimate to the people around me outside of the relationship. It was like coming out as queer again - it sucks being an adult and having friends and family ignore your relationship or tell you that you're going to ruin everything and that you are a bad person (as the person in the poly relationship that has two partners).

    Anyway, love you guys - so happy to hear you talk about Poly & Open relationships <3

    I could totally get on board with the open relationship thing. If I meet someone who I really, really connect with but who has a massive sex-drive that I can't (/don't want to) keep up with, then go for it. As long as I know about it then yeah, sure.

    ...Only because I knew someone who did this professionally at one of those types of nightclubs...


    The rope thing is called shibori, and there are lots of very good books/vids/websites on the subject. From what he told me about it way back when, if you're seriously thinking about getting into it, practice your quick-release knots first and ALWAYS adhere to the 'two finger' rule (you can slip two fingers under any loop to prevent cutting off circulation). Home Depot and hardware stores sell nylon and natural ropes by the foot.


    I've met a lot of different kinds of people in my life.

    sorry ladies, the Jazz Trumpet is far more sensual and attractive because the trumpet player may have an honest level of arrogance, but will treat you with sincerity.  The sax player may very well lie about their gender and sexual orientation for 9 yrs then throw you away like a common tool when they are done with you even though you have supported them to the end. Alas.

    Their advice about taking time to find yourself is bullshit.Love will find you: bullshit. You wouldn't believe how many years I've been without love. If I keep waiting for love to find me, love will just find a corpse. This is the same stupid advice that everyone gives. Barb said she's been in a relationship most of the time. If you want to take time to find yourself, go ahead. That being said, sitting on the couch playing video games and watching movies is NOT finding yourself. Going to the same bar every weekend with your friends (if you're lucky enough to have some), is NOT finding yourself.


    Here's advice from someone who hasn't been in a relationship for a VERY long time. Don't take to long to find yourself or you'll find yourself all alone. This isn't actually advice, it's a warning.

      As someone who's also had years between relationships, attracting someone has a lot to do with your outlook in life and how you present yourself- and frankly, your attitude here is extremely unattractive. If you go off about how no one finds you likable or you 'just can't get a girl' or something like that, how would you expect someone else to think you'd act any differently toward some other negative issue, including something with them?


      When Barb and the crew talk about 'finding yourself', they're using a common shorthand for figuring out the type of person you are now and what type you'd like to be, because it works best when someone else can be attracted to you for who you are and who you know you are. I agree, getting into a rut without any intention of 'being out there' does not fit the bill, but this isn't a zero-sum game, either; taking time to relax and recharge is still important, and can potentially still lead to something. But neither is this a 'happiness will smack me in the head' issue- the trick is to be open to the possibility of what your environment (physical/social/spiritual/etc.) presents, to invest your time and energy in ways that feel right, and very importantly, to find the right environment/s for yourself and who you want to be.


      But here's a very serious piece of advice, also a warning. Having also been in relationships with guys who take the extreme-pessimism-cloaked-as-realism approach, going off the way you did raises some red flags. Experience has taught me that guys who talk like this in real life (and not just on the internet) are more prone to being emotionally and physically abusive, and it makes me wonder if I'd even enjoy meeting you as a real person. So please, do yourself a big favor and take an honest look at how your attitude is sabotaging your efforts and making you look like someone you aren't, and hopefully don't want to be.

      I feel that I'm not going to be able to talk myself into a better position here. And now because of your comment, people will think less of me. I have never and will never be abusive to others. It goes against my nindo. I will just leave this discussion with three words: shyness, introversion, and hikikomori. If you don't understand these, you can't understand me.

    I'm glad Mariel was on for the "Kink section". She sounded like she felt out of place for being "vanilla" or reserved in comparison to the others, but she was the one I identified with and made me fell like my own vanilla-ness/reservedness (or what ever you want to call it) is also normal.  The other's experiences and point of views were interesting, but I couldn't relate to it, as they were outside of my norm. Before Mariel had her say, I was defiantly feeling a bit disconnected. I think even a little anxious about my own history and experiences. But Mariel grounded me again.


    I wonder if Barb will ever have any one who identifies as asexual on the show to provide a different point of view on topics. I'm not asexual, but my wife is, and I think it would be interesting to see other asexual people's point of view or experiences on things.
